If you are currently under contract then this article is probably in no way relevant to you.
However, if you are like me and available for an upgrade this works out to the same price as buying the battery separate and saves a step.

When I can go to Amazon and get that same phone for $99 and just buy the $50 battery myself? Less than 1/2 the price.

http://www.uk-mobilestore.co.uk/products... moreThat is a replacement battery cover as the bigger battery will not fit in the original one. It is not a full case for the whole phone. Nowhere on that site is there a cover for the phone that fits it with the extended battery and replacement cover. See the link below for a normal case. Once you have seen that try and find one that will fit over the phone with the extended battery and its replacement cover.

Omg... This is really expensive! In Germany no one would pay that much in combination with a 2year contract for a somewhat dated phone
